Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This collection of writings stands as an important reflection on the ways in which New Zealanders remember their past--be it through a poem, a waiata, a family photograph, a painting, a half-recalled history lesson, a parade, or a name on a plaque in a small town. These original, insightful essays by a raft of historians, writers, and other prominent figures reflect on various forms of remembering and remembering, what we have cherished and valued, forgotten and ignored, constructed and reframed.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 253-272) and index.
